Revenue: Guinness Nigeria’s total revenue for the period stood at N26.8 billion, marking a 4.2% decline when compared to N28 billion during the period ended September 2018.  Meanwhile, the cost of sales remained barely unchanged, standing at N18.9 billion as against N18.9 billion during the comparable period in 2018.

Note that after deducting the cost of sale, the company’s gross profit (N7.9 billion), is still less than the N9.1 billion the company recorded during the comparable period in September 2018.

Admin and Marketing costs: Guinness Nigeria’s administrative expenses for the period stood at N2.1 billion, almost the same amount it expended for the same purpose during the comparable period in September last year. In the same vein, the company spent the sum of N5.2 billion marketing and distributing its products during the period under consideration.

President Buhari, in his state of the Nation address to Nigerians this evening has warned hoodlums and the conflict entrepreneurs who have hijacked the #EndSARS protest to promote unrest.

The President explained that the choice to demonstrate peacefully is a fundamental right of citizens as enshrined in Section 40 of the Constitution and other enactments.

“I must warn those who have hijacked and misdirected the initial, genuine and well-intended protest of some of our youths in parts of the country, against the excesses of some members of the now-disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS),” he said.

President Muhammad Buhari frowned against the desperate and inhumane actions of mobsters, arsonists and hoodlums which has led to the loss of human lives, sexual violence, attacks on correctional facilities, as well as public and private properties which were completely destroyed or vandalized.

He explained that these bad actions will not be tolerated, as it is not in line with the legitimate expression of grievance of the youth of the country. He reiterated that the Government shall continue to ensure that liberty and freedom, as well as the fundamental rights of all citizens, are protected.

However, he appealed to protesters to note and take advantage of the various well-thought-out initiatives of this administration designed to make their lives better and more meaningful, and resist the temptation of being used by some subversive elements to cause chaos with the aim of truncating our nascent democracy.

The President, however, warned the youth that doing otherwise will amount to undermining national security as well as law and order, which under no circumstances will be tolerated.

President Buhari thus called on the youths to discontinue the street protests and constructively engage the government in finding solutions, as their voices have been heard loud and clear.
